I called two truck service centers in my area. They confirmed that they have “supply issues” with 15-40 oils because of additive issues. That is all that they would say. They also went on to tell me about foam rubber gasket shortages and other rubber products and many, many parts shortages.

Within the context of a legal contract, a “Force Majeure” clause frees one or both parties from liability or obligation when an extraordinary event, such as war, strike, crime, or “Act of God” prevents one or more parties from fulfilling their obligations under the contract. Not just diesel oil, all lubricants are becoming scarce, the chemicals that make ((all)) lubricants are in short supply.

My trucker neighbor here in Texas was told he has 3 weeks of run time and then his truck will be off the road indefinitely. He didn’t know about the diesel engine oil shortage and put these ideas together when i told him. He can barely break even taking the loads as it is because of diesel prices so he will “wait it out” with the savings he’s accrued.

Additives for gasoline vehicles oil might or might not be the same. Gasoline engines and Diesel engines are different and might require different additives for optimal performance. FYI, I worked in Oil and Gas almost my entire career.

Seth Holehouse did a fairly deep dive on this. The additive needed to produce the diesel engine oil is produced by 2 companies. They are reporting that they no longer have the resources to produce the addictive. Therefore, it looks like no more can be produced and what we have is what we have. This is my understanding.

I have a friend, who works for BNSF and he tells me that BNSF has told major western municipalities that they will put a 40%decrease in the shipping of potable water treatment chemicals for filtration plants this summer. Not only are cities going to have food shortages, but it looks like there won’t be any water to drink either.
